Susanna Mauer, a single woman, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Hans Karholm.

Susanna [Mauer] and her husband Leonhardt Kugel are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Leonhard Kugel and his wife Susanna are recorded on the 1767 census of Cäsarsfeld in Household No. 8. They had settled there on 3 August 1767.

The Oranienbaum passenger list does not record from where Susanna Mauer came.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Mauer family among the Volga German colonies.
